Customized Exfoliation Treatments

Exfoliating your face is an essential step in any skincare routine, as it helps to remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to a dull, uneven complexion. By sloughing away dead skin cells, exfoliation allows skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin, where they can be more effective. Regular exfoliation can also help to stimulate cell turnover, which can lead to the production of new, healthy skin cells and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.

Unfortunately, using exfoliating products on your own often isn’t enough to promote the smoothest, healthiest skin. At Dermal Advantage, we help you start fresh with our effective exfoliating treatments in Denver. Read on to learn more about our offerings!

Microdermabrasion/Hydrodermabrasion

Renew Skin Tone with Denver’s Best Microdermabrasion Treatments
During a microdermabrasion session, an applicator tool sprays microcrystals to exfoliate the face and neck. These abrasive crystals sand away the outermost layer of your skin to reveal the younger, softer-looking skin beneath. This procedure can improve uneven skin tone, acne scarring, fine lines, clogged pores and blackheads, and other blemishes.
Achieve Unmatched Hydration with a Hydrodermabrasion Session
Hydrodermabrasion is similar to microdermabrasion, but uses saline solution and oxygen instead of microcrystals. This treatment option not only improves skin tone and texture, but also boosts circulation, hydration, and collagen production for excellent anti-aging results.
Because these treatments are minimally invasive, there is no need to prepare for either one – simply step into our office, and our experienced estheticians will handle the rest! Side effects are typically minor, but can include mild redness, tenderness, and swelling. There is no downtime required after either treatment, but we do suggest avoiding direct sunlight and using gentle skin care products in the days following.

Dermaplaning FAQs

The optimal exfoliation treatment is different for everyone, as the choice depends on your skin type, skin concerns, and desired results. Generally, dermaplaning is the best option for hair removal and light exfoliation, while dermabrasion is a better choice for deep exfoliation. 

We typically recommend dermaplaning for clients looking to improve skin texture and brightness, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote better absorption of skincare products. Dermabrasion, on the other hand, is a more aggressive procedure that is typically recommended for people with more severe skin concerns, such as scarring, hyperpigmentation, or deep wrinkles. 

If you are interested in one of these treatments, but unsure of what’s best for you, feel free to come in for a consultation! Our team of skincare specialists will work with you to develop the optimal approach for your unique skin.

Dermaplaning is not right for everyone, and it can end up doing more harm than good on specific skin types. We recommend against undergoing a dermaplaning treatment if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Active acne or breakouts
  • A rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema flare-up
  • Severe sunburn
  • Sensitive skin
  • Have been taking Accutane or tretinoin in the past 6 months
  • Have cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment

Overall, dermaplaning can be a safe and effective way to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, but it’s always best to consult with a skincare professional to determine if it’s the right treatment for your individual needs and concerns.

For the best results, here are some tips we recommend to prepare for your Denver dermaplane treatment:

  •  Avoid using exfoliating products or treatments for at least a week before your appointment, as this can make the skin more sensitive and increase the risk of irritation.
  • Avoid using retinol, benzoyl peroxide, or other active ingredients that can make the skin more sensitive or increase the risk of peeling or redness.
  • Avoid waxing, threading, or other hair removal treatments in the area to be treated for at least two weeks before your appointment.
  • Communicate any concerns or skin sensitivities with your esthetician prior to your appointment to ensure that they can customize the treatment to your specific needs.

Dermaplaning is generally not painful, although some people may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity during treatment. The sensation is often described as a gentle scraping or scratching feeling, and some people may feel a slight tingling or warmth in the skin.

If you do experience any discomfort during or after the treatment, it is typically minimal and temporary. If any pain persists, be sure to contact our office immediately, and we can discuss next steps.

Here are some steps you should take post-treatment to ensure optimal results:

  • In the first 24 hours after treatment, avoid direct sun exposure, excessive sweating, and the use of harsh products (such as retinol & glycolic acid). This will help to minimize the risk of irritation and damage.
  • Be sure to moisturize your face in the days following treatment to replenish the skin barrier that was just removed.

This timeline looks different for everyone, depending on your skin type and hair growth. We typically recommend that clients wait around 4-6 weeks between treatments to allow your skin to fully recover and regenerate. 

If you have dry or sensitive skin, you may need to wait longer between treatments to avoid over-exfoliating or irritating the skin. Alternatively, if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may benefit from more frequent treatments to help control oil production and reduce the appearance of breakouts.

Our licensed aestheticians will help you determine an optimal treatment frequency based on your skin type, concerns, and desired results.

No, your hair will not grow back thicker or darker after a dermaplaning treatment. While dermaplaning is a method of hair removal, it does not impact the growth rate or texture of the hair follicles.

If anything, dermaplaning can actually make hair appear softer and lighter, as it removes the top layer of dead skin cells and allows for better absorption of skincare products. Additionally, because dermaplaning removes the buildup of dead skin cells and impurities from the skin’s surface, it can also improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.

Microdermabrasion & Hydrodermabrasion FAQs

The main difference between these two treatments is the method of exfoliation. While microdermabrasion uses a device with a diamond or crystal tip to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, hydrodermabrasion is a newer technology that uses water and a vacuum to exfoliate the skin.

In addition, hydrodermabrasion is a slightly more gentle process than microdermabrasion. It adds the benefit of deep hydration into the equation and has incredible brightening effects; however, it is less effective for clients looking to treat deep wrinkles and other imperfections. In this case, we actually recommend combining the two treatments for a greater impact!

Yes, we actually recommend doing so! Our microderm and hydroderm treatments combine the efficacy of conventional microdermabrasion with a new twist: product penetration and an advanced form of exfoliation. Microdermabrasion works to renew overall skin tone, while hydrodermabrasion improves circulation and promotes hydration for an unbeatable youthful glow.

One of the best parts about these two treatments is that they are a safe and effective option for all skin types and skin tones! Both treatments are nonsurgical and minimally invasive, meaning they won’t cause any scarring or infection. 

If you suffer from any of the following conditions, these treatments might be an excellent option for you:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne and/or acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage

No, neither of these treatments is painful, since we are working with an outer layer of dead skin cells.

With microdermabrasion, some clients may experience a mild sensation of tightness or tingling during or after the treatment. This sensation is usually described as feeling like a mild scratching or slight pressure on the skin. However, we actually find the sensation quite pleasant and relaxing!

With hydrodermabrasion, the sensation is even more pleasant! Our clients typically describe this treatment as feeling like a hydrating facial massage.

There is little to no downtime required after these treatments. However, for optimal results, we recommend you follow these instructions in the 24 hours following your session:

  • Avoid excessive sweating.
  • Follow a gentle, hydrating skincare regimen.
  • These treatments can cause some minor peeling as the skin turns over, so try to avoid picking at your skin.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and be sure to wear sunscreen.

Most patients require several treatments in order to see lasting results. Your aesthetician will work with you to create a schedule that is right for your unique skin type and goals. Most of our clients receive anywhere between 5-16 treatments; these treatments can occur weekly, every other week, or once a month, depending on your skin.

Yes, it can! Microdermabrasion can be helpful in reducing the appearance of mild acne scars. The treatment works by gently exfoliating the outermost layer of skin, which can help to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.

However, for more severe or deep acne scarring, microdermabrasion may not be the most effective treatment option for you. If you struggle with acne scarring, feel free to book a consultation at our office to discuss the best approach for your unique skin.
